A ceremonial funeral for Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, will take place today but what will happen and where can you watch?
Due to coronavirus restrictions, only 30 mourners are allowed to attend the service in St George’s Chapel in Windsor.
Where can you watch?
The service will begin at 3pm and is to be broadcast by the BBC, STV and Sky.
Coverage prior to the funeral will begin at 12.40pm on BBC One and the BBC iPlayer, with a shortened re-run lasting one hour scheduled for 8.10pm.
STV’s coverage begins at 1.15pm with Sky One’s broadcast starting at 2.45pm.
The events leading up to the service and the funeral itself will also be broadcast over the airways via BBC Radio Scotland from 2pm.
Social distancing in place
Attendees will be required to wear face coverings with social distancing in place.
The Grenadier Guards will lead the procession to St George’s Chapel followed by a party of high ranking military figures.
The Duke’s four children – Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward – will all walk behind the Duke’s coffin, alongside Prince William, Prince Harry and Peter Phillips, Princess Anne’s son.
Prince Philip’s coffin is being carried in a specially modified Land Rover designed by the Duke.
The Queen will travel in a vehicle behind the procession before entering the chapel via a side door where she will take up her place in the congregation alone.
The service will be conducted by the Dean of Windsor, David Conner, before he will deliver the commendation as the coffin is lowered into the royal vault.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, will give the blessing.
A small choir of four people will also be in attendance to sing music chosen by the Duke.
